A food tour around the British Isles!


Attention fellow foodies! I extend a warm invitation for you to join myself and Catherine Huntley this Thursday for a three-hour show special: Food Around The British Isles – we start our journey at 4pm.

This celebration of British Food features many our your favourite award-winning premium food brands, together with a sprinkling of new ones to QVC UK.

We start off in West Sussex with The Real Pie Company (more later), then we travel to Warwickshire for Meg River’s cakes, north to Scotland for Royal Warrant-holding Donald Russell meats and food, back down to the South West for Godminster cheddar and apple county cider, up to Hertfordshire for new brand Betty Bakes and Churchill’s biscuits, and across to East London for H Forman & Son smoked salmon and foods.Brownies

Head North East to Lincolnshire for The Original Cake Company, then back up to Scotland for Simple Simon’s pies and foods, then back down to Staffordshire for Cottage Delights’ jams and chutneys; way down South West to Cornwall for Buttermilk fudge, across the Severn Bridge to Wales and Gower Cottage Brownies. Then Best of British Beer brings brews from England, Scotland and Wales, and then we’re back to London for exciting new brand Rubies in the Rubble chutneys and condiments and Whittard of Chelsea hot chocolate mixes.food

As mentioned I’ll kick off proceedings at midnight with the launch of The Real Pie Company’s 12-piece Assorted Favourites Selection, guested as always by Brett ‘pie-man’ Hornby.pies

This tasty selection from Brett’s West Sussex-based Real Pie Company features a mouth-watering assortment of 12 hand-crafted pies, pasties and rolls in six delicious flavours including the brand new Chicken, Ham & Tarragon pie plus customer favourites Steak & Stout, and Chicken & Mushroom. A real delight for any pie lover, this wonderful assortment is baked to perfection and ‘crammed to the crust’.

Please allow 10-14 days for delivery because the Real Pie Company bake in small batches under the watchful eyes of Real Pie Chefs, then they are delivered chilled within 24 hours of being baked, individually wrapped and labelled with all ingredients and nutritional information. If like me, you’ll be left wanting more – there’s an Auto Delivery option and we’ll send you this selection again in April 2017 at the same great TSV price!

You can eat immediately cold, re-heat or freeze upon arrival for up to six months (and Brett recommends slowly defrosting before they are reheated).

You will get:

2 x Steak & Stout Pies

2 x Peppered Steak Pies

2 x Chicken & Mushroom Pies

2 x Chicken, Ham & Tarragon Pies (new!)

2 x Minced Steak & Vegetable Pasties

2 x Cumberland with Sage Sausage Rolls

I shall stop eating on Tuesday evening in order to prepare for the day ahead – okay seriously, I will have to pace myself and will be very grateful for Catherine covering the second hour!


I hope you can join me at some point, and – Real Pie Co. fans – if past Real Pie Company TSV’s are anything to go by it might be prudent to join in the banquet at midnight!

Until next time stay satiated and well-travelled!

Dale x
